Abstract

The temperature dependence of the thermal boundary resistivity is investigated in glass-embedded Ag particles of radius 4.5¿nm, in the temperature range from 300 to 70¿K, using all-optical time-resolved nanocalorimetry. The present results provide a benchmark for theories aiming at explaining the thermal boundary resistivity at the interface between metal nanoparticles and their environment, a topic of great relevance when tailoring thermal energy delivery from nanoparticles as for applications in nanomedicine and thermal management at the nanoscale.
